Celebrate Lunar New Year in London

Prepare for an auspicious year with the Year of the Dragon

It's time to reset as we celebrate Lunar New Year on 10 February. 2024 brings an opportunity for good luck, strength and prosperity as is often associated with the Year of the Dragon.

Plan a strong start to the New Year with our guide to the best Lunar New Year gifts, collections, and ways to celebrate in central London.

Spruce up your space

It's tradition to enter the New Year with a clean and tidy house. Allow the good energy into your home and get ready for Lunar New Year by picking up fresh flowers from H&M Home. Or create enduring positivity in your home with a bouquet of LEGO flowers from Hamleys and get a head start on building a productive year.

Prepare for an illuminating year

Mushrooms are associated with longevity in Asian culture so why not add a colourful touch to your place with this mushroom table lamp from Anthropologie? Another way to drive out the darkness and look forward to a bright new year is by lighting candles on Lunar New Year's Eve. Some of our favourite spots to stock up on candles are Earl of East, Molton Brown, Jo Malone and Creed.

Stock up on oranges at Whole Foods

Usher in a fruitful new year by stocking up on fresh fruit. If you are what you eat is something to be believed, make your own destiny and go for oranges which sound like "wealth" in Mandarin, or tangerines which sound like "luck".

Find gifts for the whole family at Burberry

Burberry is a one-stop shop for this year’s Chinese New Year gifts – browse menswear, womenswear, accessories and kids' items. Keep out the winter chill with this reversible check cashmere scarf. We're obsessed with its collection of warped houndstooth check designs and red rose print, all in the colour traditionally associated with good fortune.

Embrace the dragon

Imaginative, brave, ambitious, energetic and charismatic - we could all stand to channel some of the characteristics of the dragon zodiac. For little ones (or big ones!) who want a reminder that we can all be confident, try Hamleys' teddy bear in a dragon suit. Browse Hamleys' range of dragon toys and game for a fun-filled New Year. 

Make a bold statement with Gant

Embrace the Year of the Dragon and create a statement look with Gant’s Lunar New Year capsule collection. For a bold look worthy of this year, try its crew neck sweatshirt with intricate dragon embroidery on the sleeve, chest and back. Or opt for a relaxed fit t-shirt with a dragon crest motif.

Fly into the new year with Maje

Maje have channelled the Year of the Dragon in its powerful new womenswear collection. Add some extra sparkle to the everyday with its hot pink rhinestone dragon tee or patterned denim shirt and jeans. For an elevated workwear look, its embellished pink tweed playsuit is a cut above the rest.

Shop Lunar New Year at BOSS

Upgrade your fashion credentials with Boss. With limited edition Lunar New Year artwork and a classic palette of red and black tones, its cool, androgynous bombers, cardigans and loungewear work as the perfect present to yourself, or to send to a loved one.

Immerse yourself in Asian art

Experience a curated collection of Chinese art with a particular focus on the Song dynasty at Priestley & Ferraro, a modern and contemporary Chinese art gallery in neighbouring St James's.

Planning to spend the day in London’s West End? Explore more ways to celebrate Lunar New Year in St James's, or wander into nearby Chinatown on 11 January for the biggest Lunar New Year celebrations outside of Asia.
